Chitando the best of all Gutu MPs, says Matuke

 Chitando speaks at the victory celebrations at Mushayavanhu High School on July 13

…as Gutu Central MP
donates 1 200 bags of cement for constituency development


Senator Lovemore Matuke has praised Gutu Central Member of Parliament Winston
Chitando as a committed public representative whose work in the district
surpasses all that the other three MPs are doing.
The other MPs are John Paradza
of Gutu West, Pupurai Togarepi of Gutu South and Yeukai Simbanegavi of Gutu
Speaking at
Mushayavanhu High School in Ward 35 where hundreds of Zanu PF supporters
gathered to for an election victory celebration on July 13, Matuke said in
Chitando, the people of the area had a selfless representative.
“It’s unfortunate that
the other MPs are not here. I would have liked them to be here so that they see
what Chitando is doing. Right now we are looking at 1 200 bags of cement that
he donated to the constituency for use in the various projects that he has
initiated. This donation alone means the MP has parted ways with $120 000 from
his own pocket for this cement to be here.
“As a senator, I have
the privilege of moving around the constituency assessing what is happening on
the ground and I can confidently say that the work being done by our MP is
greater than that being done by all the other MPs combined,” said Matuke.
He said the people of
Gutu Central were yet to realise what a selfless leader Chitando was, adding
that there was no doubt that he will be re-elected in 2023.
“I derive some pride
from the fact that I am the one who introduced him to you. He is the Minister
of Mines and a very busy man. The president wants to see him all the time so it
is remarkable that he still spares some moments to come and be with his own
people,” he said.
Matuke himself donated
hundreds of kilogrammes of rice to villagers, saying he was helping to fulfill
President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s wish to see all families having enough to eat.
Ward 35 Councillor
Fungai Ravasingadi said she was impressed by Chitando’s efforts to improve access
to social services in the area.
“I am really inspired
by the work he is doing. He has assisted many schools and clinics and is also
building deep tanks in many wards. The cement he has donated will go a long way
in making sure that the projects are quickly completed,” said Ravasingadi.
In his own remarks,
Chitando said there was a lot that still needed to be done to improve living
standards in the country-side.
“As a leader, I am
working to make a difference in the lives of the people that sent me to
parliament. There is a lot that still needs to be done but I am glad I have
managed to make a difference that even my political seniors like Senator Matuke
have appreciated,” said Chitando.
Among many other
projects, Chitando has funded the building of a classroom block at Mushayavanhu
primary School and has also donated computers to Mushayavanhu High School.
He has also provided
money to build deep tanks in wards 19 and 38, and is funding the construction
of a mortuary at Chingombe Rural Hospital.
